I've never been much of a cook much to my mother's disappointment , and hour days at the office leave little time to prepare gourmet meals. Before, I'd do my grocery shopping at the end of a hectic workday, with a growling stomach and dwindling patience. I'd rush in, grab what ever was on sale, and get out as quickly as possible. And when I was really busy like during awards show season, when I'm on every actress's speed dial , the groceries would get shoved into the pantry according to the way they were bagged at the store— randomly.
I always managed to forget what I'd bought. And I'd end up reaching for my favorite and sometimes least healthy snacks— my old standbys, the jeans and T-shirts of my pantry.
What I've learned is that when I do take the time to shop and can come home and put everything away properly, I end up eating better. No desperate handfuls of potato chips to satisfy a midday craving, no cold cereal for dinner because there's just nothing else to eat.

I also discovered that if you plan your meals ahead of time, you can make the best use of what's already in the pantry and waste less food— which means more money left over for shoes or what ever you'd rather be shopping for!
Th e Feed Your Face Diet is the culmination of everything we've talked about in the previous eight chapters— how to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, boost UV protection, fuel collagen production, heal acne, reduce infl ammation, and soothe rashes— organized into a month-long meal plan that takes the fear and stress out of eating for healthier, more beautiful skin.
Starting on page you'll find 28 days' worth of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack suggestions. Every meal is easy to prepare and has been designed to provide a balance of antioxidants to fight free radicals , protein to fuel collagen production , omega- 3s to soothe inflammation , and lycopene for UV protection.
While the Feed Your Face Diet will benefi t all skin types, I've gone ahead and made some necessary adjustments for certain skin conditions in particular, such as reminding you to avoid dairy if you're pimple- prone, adding more soy if you're worried about fi ne lines and wrinkles, or avoiding gluten if you suff er from stubborn rashes. The meal plan, however, is merely a way to put the Feed Your Face philosophy into practice— it's designed to take the guesswork out of deciding what to eat, not to tell you what you have to eat.
After all, you'll eventually graduate to preparing your own face-friendly meals.
If you don't like, say, tofu, swap it out for another lean protein such as chicken. Likewise, if you don't care for broccoli, choose a different green veggie instead. And if you love the chocolate smoothie on page , feel free to make it your new go- to breakfast. How is that possible after years and years of hard living while I am wrinkling like a prune at age 39 with no rock star lifestyle?
Another lesson in life not being fair. May 10, Gina rated it it was ok. As Jessica Wu is a dermatologist, I was hoping for more definitive product suggestions for dark spots, etc.

She argues that our skin's biggest enemy is not greasy, fatty foods but rather sugar. She gives advice on various skin conditions and suggests which foods to eliminate.
For example, dairy products can make acne worse and gluten can trigger eczema. I was surprised to learn that tomatoes--one of my favorite foods--can protect against UV damage.

I read some reviews that said they didn't like the book because nothing was based on evidence. Personally I felt a lot of what she talks about is common sense that we just tend to forget.

But not the greasy, deep dish kind piled high with bacon and sausage. Instead, ask for thin crust, preferably whole-wheat; get it light on the cheese, and add protein like grilled chicken as well as green and yellow veggies to fight crow's feet.

For an extra dose of antioxidants, have a glass of red wine on the side. For clear skin, stay away from dairy. Milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, and other dairy products have been linked to acne breakouts.
